The complexity of public-private partnership (PPP) transactions often means that considerable time and expense is involved in preparing and finalizing the contract. This has led many stakeholders to ask for standardized provisions in such contracts to allow for a quicker and less expensive drafting process. Given the variety of PPP transactions and legal systems, as well as the need for "tailor-made" provisions, the development of fully standardized&...

Revisión de Experiencias con Iniciativas Privadas en Proyectos de Infraestructura

En la práctica, muchas autoridades públicas de todo el mundo recurren a las IPs, motivadas por la perspectiva de resolver los desafíos que plan...

LESSONS LEARNED SINCE THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR INVESTORS IN EMERGING MARKETS TODAY
Every financial system has faced or will face a crisis at some point. But even in the absence of a crisis, the extraordinary growth in credit over the last two decades has resulted in an increase of non-performing loans (NPLs), which are an unavoidable by-product of lending. This can put economies at risk. When not addressed, distressed assets can grow to reach critical thresholds that can slow down, or even prevent, economic recovery and increase unemployment, creating a vicious circle th...

Review of Experiences with Unsolicited Proposals in Infrastructure Projects
When it comes to infrastructure projects, “unsolicited proposals” (USPs) represent an alternative to the traditional project initiation method where the private sector, rather than the government, takes the leading role in identifying and developing a project. In practice, many public authorities across the world resort to USPs motivated by the perspective of solving the challenges brought by their lack of capacity to identify and develop projects. However, many projects that o...

In the mid-2000s, a pioneering contract for privately operated water service in sections of Hubballi-Dharwad, Belagavi and Kalaburagi cities proved that 24/7 water service was possible in India. Until then, despite the availability of enough water, residents in the majority of Indian cities received water for only a couple of hours a day due to poor management, system leaks, and financial problems of utilities. That initiative, financed as part of a World Bank project, also showed that it ...
